FundCoaches - affordable fundraising training at your desk

I’m thrilled to announce the launch of!

Have you noticed how hard it is to find high quality, extremely practical, and affordable fundraising training?

That inspired me to work to make it ridiculously easy for people to get fundraising training. I offer books, DVDs, and downloads in addition to presenting in-person around the world.

A call from out of the blue (Ok, really a call from Canada)

So I was intrigued to get a call from Mo Lidsky, a fundraiser at Yeshiva University. He’d come into philanthropy from a business background and couldn’t believe how hard it was to find cost effective, CFRE standard training. Usually you have to go away to conference, paying travel and lodging expenses in addition to paying the conference registration. He couldn’t believe there wasn’t any place for people to get affordable training without having to leave their office.

So he pulled together Simone Joyaux, Tom Ahern, Ted Hart, and myself to produce high-quality fundraising training that would be incredibly affordable. We call it FundCoaches.

Strict standards

Mo and his team flew around the country filming us presenting our training. He had three requirements:

  1. that we deliver practical content that would help staff and board members,
  2. of a high enough quality to qualify for CFRE requirements, and
  3. that we do each topic in 20-30 minute segments

He wanted you to be able to watch one of our modules while you ate your lunch. And he didn’t mean watch some PowerPoint slides. He wanted you to be able to actually see us.

For prices as low as $16.99, you can have video content to help you or your board members advance your nonprofit’s fundraising.

You can learn from modules including:

  • “Successful Direct Mail” and “How to Market Bequests to Donors” from Tom Ahern
